GBS in North Carolina

The aforementioned folk-pop-Celtic band Great Big Sea has three dates coming up in North Carolina. These guys are arena-fillers in Canada and practically anonymous in the U.S., particularly in the South. I know of at least a few folks north of the border who are road-tripping exclusively for a chance to see them in clubs or dives. Here's the N.C. itinerary:

March 2AshevilleGrey Eagle Tavern and Music Hall
March 4CharlotteNeighborhood Theatre
March 5RaleighLincoln Theatre

Out-of-state visitors to this site will want to check the full tour schedule at their website. Shannon and I are planning on going to the Raleigh gig. I can't recommend this band strongly enough -- well worth arranging a babysitter and risking bleary eyes at work the following day.
